on the new york city school worship ban, which deals with off-hours churches and other religious groups meeting in those schools for worship. >> i am against it. >> i am, too, and i cannot understand it. this is just a personal comment, but it is bizarre to me that new york has dug his heels in and giving access to facilities on the same basis to religious groups that they do to other groups, and trying to focus on worship -- it is not talking about religion and just keeps on going. i should of thought they would have given up on that a long time ago. i do think it is a very bad idea. >> i think they have the constitutional authority, the city does, to do what it did. there is room for play where government can act to avoid establishment clause problems, and a thing that is what they did there. >> okay, last question. >> davis question on the mandate covered mine, so i will ask a follow-up on this -- new york is also where you did not have any religious representation at the 10th anniversary of the september 11 memorial service. are we getting to a point where we are so pluralistic reli

have a religious freedom problem, go to your elected official, state legislator, city council, what have you, which is all well and good unless you are incapable of commanding a majority in that legislator, in which case you're out of law. -- legislature, in which case you are out of luck. when thinking about this in an historical context and looking back 50 years, not quite 50 years, 1965 was the conclusion of the council. the last document was the sort of monumental statement of the church on religious freedom and the inherent dignity of each and every person. it is not just about the rights of catholic individuals or the catholic faith or of institutions, it is about the rights of each and every human being to search for the truth, discern the truth, and here to the truth once they find it. that is an element of catholic that his intti sufficiently well known even among catholics. i think the -- that is insufficiently well known, even among catholics. i think the bishops are trying to change that. >> two things to me are quite clear. one is that on paper we are all in this countr

. that worldview that says that america is a nation of exceptionalism. and we are to be that shining city on a hill, as president reagan so beautifully said, that we are a beacon of hope and that we are unapologetic here. we are not perfect as a nation. but together, we represent a perfect ideal, and that is democracy and tolerance and freedom and equal rights. those things that we stand for that can be put to good use as a force for good in this world. john mccain and i share that, and you combine all that with being a team with the only track record of making a really, a difference in where we've been and reforming, and that's a good team, it's a good ticket. >> senator? >> you're very kind suggesting my only achilles heel is my lack of discipline. >> others talk about my excessive passion. i'm not going to change. i have 35 years in public office. people can judge who i am. i haven't changed in that time. and, by the way, a record of change -- i will place my record and barack's record against john mccain's or anyone else in terms of fundamental accomplishments. wrote the crime bill, put 100,000
